Audubon snow camp

On Presidents Day, kids get a chance to play and learn in the winter wonderland of Audubon Community Nature Center (ACNC).

Four-to-12-year-olds can have fun at Snow Camp on Monday, Feb. 17, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. They can enjoy a day playing in the snow, exploring nature, or creating winter art.

Along the way, they will learn about nature and all the cool activity that occurs during the snowier months of the year.

Whether it is an animal track in the snow or a flock of birds flying high above, discovering is the theme of the day. Naturalists will lead children through forest and fields, along pond edges and deer trails. Winter wildlife abounds and this is a great opportunity to discover it.

Children will be in age groups for some activities and in larger groups for others. They need to bring a lunch and water bottle and come prepared to go outside.

Cost for the day is $40 or $35 for Nature Center member children. Siblings receive a $5 discount.

Enrollment is limited. Paid reservations are required by noon on Friday, February 14. They can be made by calling (716) 569-2345 during business hours or going online to AudubonCNC.org/Programs and clicking “Current Schedule.”

To learn more about Audubon and its many programs, call (716) 569-2345, visit AudubonCNC.org, or find Audubon Community Nature Center on Facebook.
